I like Pokemon more than you! :p
Its not just THIS set that will be overprinted. TPCI will probably be reprinting virtually every SWSH era Pokémon TCG product for months. I mean, a large percentage of all Pokémon TCG products are in the hands of scalpers, so everyone will be eager to buy whatever reprint runs TPCI is able to release, with the result that TPCI will probably flood the market with all the products that have been scalped during the pandemic. Then scalpers will be forced to liquidate their stashes of scalped products, which will flood the market again. This will most likely cause the floor to drop out underneath the prices of individual cards, and the results will be ideal for both those who open sealed product and collect individual cards.OVERPRINT THESE PLEASE
Could you imagine trying to explain like 10 new (returning) card mechanics to casual players all released in the same set? Would be a nightmare. I wish hope they will be legal, but I strongly doubt it.I dont see why it wouldn't be as they look to be sword and shield era black star promos
The fact that Pikachu V-UNION is a promo makes it less likely that every card will be illegal (well, technically it makes it impossible since that card is legal but you know what I mean). I think it's only the cards styled like old cards that won't be legal.I think there's a good chance none of the promos are going to be tournament legal. The only reason I say that is because "Prime" isn't really a mechanic per sé. Because of that, there isn't a real reason why Dragapult would be banned from tournament play outside of "just because." Play-wise, there is no functional difference between a Dragapult Prime and any other Dragapult.
Granted, since Dark Sylveon V and Lance's Charizard V are V's... maybe that will allow them to skirt by? Odd since "Dark" and "Trainer's" pokémon ARE old mechanics not present in the current run of the TCG... Would they ban Light Toxtricity but keep Dark Sylveon V? It's weird.
